What Case Should I get for my Build

Jun 15, 2018
This is my build so far and i'm looking to overclock it, I've purchased everything except for the gpu
and i'm looking for what the best case is that I can get for $150. (note: I don't care about looks at all just performance, and also should I get a case and then get a bunch of fans for it or just get an expensive case?)

Here are a couple of suggestions.

The Fractal Design Meshify C is a fantastic high Airflow case that is built well and will do more than a good job:


My personal case is the Cooler Master H500P MEsh, again another high airflow case but with 2 large 200MM Fans bringing air in through a mesh front. Easy to build in with a lot of speace and looks good but that is subjective..



That is a nice case, especially the front cover...I went the other way and could not help myself get sucked into RGB, yes it is dangerouse and contrary to popular belief has not added any extra performance to my rig....But the H500P Mesh does a great job on the cooling front..
